Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui will be acting governor for the next few weeks as Gov. Neil Abercrombie travels out of state for meetings and vacation.
The governor’s office said Wednesday Abercrombie is in Los Angeles and New York to meet with credit agencies about the state’s economy and fiscal condition.
After the meetings wrap up on Friday, the governor will join his wife in France for personal travel.
The governor is expected back in Hawaii on Oct. 11.
